Oral Answers to Questions — Safeguarding of Industries Act. – in the House of Commons on 10th July 1922.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Vulcanised Fibre Committee appointed by him under Part II of the Safeguarding of Industries Act intends to resume its sittings; and, if it does, whether he can give the date?
I have no information beyond that already given to the hon. Member on Monday last, 3rd July.
Is it not in the power of the President of the Board of Trade to insist that this Committee shall either do its work or retire?
I do not think the President has much power to make a complaint to expedite their inquiry.
